2 Things You MUST KNOW
EVERY PERSON on Family Search has 2 things -
#1 - A PERSON PAGE - where information is stored and recorded - you will enter information here!
#2 - A NUMBER - each person is given a number - this NUMBER is immediately under their name - it contains letters and numbers - super helpful:)
(tip: if you are working on a person jot this NUMBER down in a little notebook with their name - that way you will not get confused when you find several people with the same name)
